The Broken Hearts Book ClubThe Broken Hearts Book Club by Lynsey James

Will be starting this book this evening so not much to say just yet. I’m taking part in the blog tour next week for this release and am expecting a predictable but enjoyable easy read nonetheless.

The blurb

Secrets never stay buried for long…

Lucy Harper has always been good at one thing: running from her past. But when her beloved Nana Lily passes away she has no choice except to return to the one place in the world she most wants to avoid…

Luna Bay hasn’t changed much in the eight years she has spent in London. The little Yorkshire village is still just as beautiful, but the new pub landlord is a gorgeous addition to the scenery!

Lucy only intended to stay for a day, yet when she discovers that Nana Lily has not only left her a cottage but also ‘The Broken Hearts Book Club’, Lucy is intrigued. Her Nana never have mentioned the club and Lucy can’t wait to get started, but walking into her first meeting she is more aware than ever that her past is finally catching up with her.

One way or another, Lucy must finally face the secrets she’s kept buried for so long – or spend the rest of her life on the run…

I recently finished reading

The Invisible LibraryThe Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman

I think I have to accept that fantasy and magical reads are just not my thing and if it wasn’t my book club read I would have abandoned. I had no real interest in picking the book up and struggled to understand some of what I was reading. That said, the parts that were investigative were good.

The blurb

Irene is a professional spy for the mysterious Library, which harvests fiction from different realities. And along with her enigmatic assistant Kai, she’s posted to an alternative London. Their mission – to retrieve a dangerous book. But when they arrive, it’s already been stolen. London’s underground factions seem prepared to fight to the very death to find her book.

Adding to the jeopardy, this world is chaos-infested – the laws of nature bent to allow supernatural creatures and unpredictable magic. Irene’s new assistant is also hiding secrets of his own.

Soon, she’s up to her eyebrows in a heady mix of danger, clues and secret societies. Yet failure is not an option – the nature of reality itself is at stake.

What’s up next?

Death by DangerousDeath by Dangerous by Olly Jarvis

Having completed a law degree 4 years ago I do have an interest in law and love legal thrillers so this should be right up my street. I’ve seen positive reviews about it so looking forward to this one.

The blurb

Death by Dangerous is a compelling legal thriller set in Manchester and Bradford.

John Anderson is one of the North West’s most dedicated and successful prosecution barristers. His career is going from strength to strength and he is on the verge of becoming Queen’s Counsel. But the life he once knew suddenly comes crashing down following a fatal road traffic accident…

    I’ve got to admit that The Invisible Library sounds just like my thing! Gotta say, though, there’s not much that’s worse than having to trawl your way through a book you aren’t enjoying.

    Here’s my post for the week.

      Victorian fantasy lovers will adore this book I’m sure. Just not one for me.
      Thanks for stopping by 🙂

      I hope you enjoy them both!

    I think The Invisible Library suffered from “first book” syndrome – the author may have devoted too much time to setting up the world rather than getting on with the plot which was specific to this volume. As you say, the best bits were when they were actually investigating the immediately relevant mystery. I hope the next one will be better – and then I like fantasy and sci-fi stuff!
    The Broken Hearts Book Club looks like a lovely, relaxing read. I hope you enjoy it!
    Thanks for visiting my post and happy reading 🙂

      You always manage to say exactly what I’m thinking about the book and say it much more eloquently and succinctly! Sign of a good writer 🙂

    Sorry that The Invisible Library wasn’t enjoyable. Sometimes book clubs find gems and sometimes duds. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

      That’s the joy of book club reads; forces you to read books out of your comfort zone 🙂

    • 8th October 2015 / 9:31 am

      I think I need to avoid altogether.
      Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    Death By Dangerous sounds like an intriguing read! I will have to add it to my wishlist as well. 🙂

    Shame you didn’t like The Invisible Library, I quite like the sound of it but can see that the mix of reality and fantasy may not work for everyone (and possibly myself included!).

    • 8th October 2015 / 9:26 am

      Definitely one of those Marmite type books 🙂

    The Broken Hearts Book Club is on my TBR, Hopefully I’ll get to it soon! Sorry you book club book wasn’t your thing. I hate when books don’t work out. Thanks for stopping by my post!
